Death was an American death metal band from Orlando, Florida, founded in 1983 by guitarist and vocalist Chuck Schuldiner. It is considered to be one of the most influential bands in heavy metal and a pioneering force in death metal. Its debut album, Scream Bloody Gore, has been widely regarded as the first death metal record, while the band’s driving force, Chuck Schuldiner, is acknowledged as the originator of extreme metal. The band ceased to exist after Schuldiner died of brain cancer in December 2001, but remains an enduring metal brand, bravewords.com reports.
It was 1993 when the US band cemented their reputation as one of the most creative and innovative progressive metal bands of our time by releasing their fifth studio album, Individual Thought Patterns. The album was their most technical and progressive material to date while displaying the full talents of Death mastermind Chuck Schuldiner. In 2016, this legendary album will be brought back to life in the live setting. With their upcoming 2016 Tour, European Thought Patterns, Death DTA will pay tribute to the masterpiece along with classic cuts from all of the Death albums. The Death DTA line up will be as huge as in 2015, consisting of Steve Di Giorgio (Death,Testament, Sadus), Gene Hoglan (Death,Testament, Dark Angel), Bobby Koelble (Death) and Max Phelps (Exist), who have joined forces to resurrect those iconic songs, along with many more milestones from Death’s legendary history.
The European Thought Patterns tour is the latest endeavor in a series of tours that have seen Death DTA Tours performing at dozens of festivals and countries across the globe, and alongside such renowned artists as Obituary, Carcass, Kreator, and many more.
In celebration of the upcoming tour, Relapse Records will release the first ever, fully authorized Death tab book, featuring 21 classic songs tabbed out for guitar from the band’s entire discography. The book, which includes traditional notation as well as tablature, also comes with a digital download of all 21 tracks and will see a release this Christmas via Relapse.
Death’s storied catalog has undergone a meticulous reissue campaign via Relapse Records which be streamed via the band’s official Bandcamp page here.
